A Tornado Watch is in effect for a large chunk of Central Alabama until 6 AM. This means that atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of tornadoes.
In for a stormy night tonight in Central Alabama…tracking a thin line of thunderstorms already in progress to our West along the Mississippi River. As this line tracks through our area tonight, we’ll have a chance of strong winds, heavy rain, lightning, & a small chance of a brief tornado. Note the low-pressure center on the map…on the PLUS side, this low is currently located too far North for us to see a widespread severe weather outbreak, although storms still expected to roll through late tonight.
